5 STARS FOR BECK 1 STAR FOR THE VENUE
I am a Beck fanatic. If I were 20 years younger I would be a groupie, no doubt. This was my ninth Beck concert and by far one of my favorites of his performances. The set list was amazing, the band was tight and Beck has never sounded better. He threw some love at the Philly crowd and the band introduction with the fern was a highlight of the night. Jenny Lewis filled in for Glass Animals and that was a bonus. But..the venue sucked. I understood when I bought the tickets that it is standing room only. You can rent chairs but the only thing they are good for is saving more space. We stood near the back for better sound, but for me, being a very short woman, that was a trade off. Honestly if you're under 6' and not in the first few rows, you will see very little. Thankfully the weather was perfect. Bottom line- Beck is boss. I will always be one of the first in line to buy tickets when he comes our way-but maybe I'll think twice if it is at Festival Pier.

BECK AT MSG
I am a long-time fan of Beck and he did not disappoint at MSG last night (7/19/18). I could not believe it was the first time he ever played that venue!! He started with great energy and kept the pace up even with a few acoustic numbers from his dreamy Morning Phase. All from his COLORS set really brought those great recordings to life. He is super talented and a great live performer. I always feel happy after seeing him.

The best concert I have ever been to. The Fox is absolutely gorgeous, with awesome staff. Beck definitely brought it to town last night!

YEAH, THANKS, I WAS LONG OVERDUE FOR A SOLID ROCK SESSION
yEah, thanks, I was long overdue for a solid rock session . My first show with Beck, The deep rock roots was apparent and very well received. Did he really forget some lyrics? We were saying before the show that we didn't know much of the lyrics, and so didn't feel like we should. I really connected with morning phase and was pumped with Colors. I look forward to many more years of you guys!

Long-time concert-goer. Looking forward to our first Beck concert and our first concert at Northerly Island. Totally let down! We paid $300 each for good seats at the concert only to find out they were cheap folding chairs zip tied together, that could barely fit the normal sized adult. We found ourselves between larger individauls leaving no room for us to sit in our seats comfortably. It was very uncomfortable for both parties. When the concert started there wasn't even enough room to stand next to each other. When Beck came on I was very disappointed... weak vocals, forgotten lyrics, microphone issues that no one seemed to address..... The large video screens apparently only have black and white capability. The highlight of the night was Cage Elephant, they rocked. Spoon was entertaining and a great opener.

"CURFEW" COME ON BECK, THAT COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED...
Huge storm rolls into Merriweather, delays Cage's set, but they finished up at 9:40p....Beck needs almost an hour for him to come on stage, and played 12 songs due to "curfew" while the stage was ready a good 30 minutes before he came on....Cage stole the show! I did see Beck at The Anthem last year, and the show was awesome. He could have come on earlier to finish the show.
